Hello, Thank you for sharing your experience on Microsoft Community forum.
Thanks, Tom 1 person found this helpful Briago Moore replied on This worked for me, but a small modification to the code for the bat file so you are not left with a dos box open after launching WMP: ------ for /f usebackq tokens 1,2 delims a in 1 do if /i a File1 start C: Program Files x86 Windows Media Player b sleep 2 Inserting start allows for the dos window to close.
However, this alone doesn t give enough time for WMP to launch.
So sleep 2 is added to the end to allow the WMP launch to complete before the dos window is closed.
Be the first person to mark this helpful Abuse history I apologize in advance, but even if you are a forum moderator, this is a poor answer. Then Paul G offered a very simple and easy solution that DOES work.
So, take a stroll down memory lane to remember all of our past Word of the Year selections.
